Es excelente el libro. El relato te deja el corazón conmovido, sobre todo el tema del valor de separase de sus hijos por el deseo de libertad propia.

Zana Muhsen, a young English woman, tells how, when she was 15,she and her sister Nadia were sold by their father into marriage, tohusbands they did not know, in the poor Arab country of Yemen.
I read this book about four years ago. It is a highly emphatic account - vividly describing the harsh world the young women found themselves in, the injustices they were subjected to - their physical and mental suffering. It evokes great compassion in the reader - and it is quite disturbing, as many of the readers here testify. Andrew Crofts must be commended for his superb communication of Zana's story.
Reading it in the comfort of Western society, I began to painfully feel how unaware so many of us in the West are of what happens in the rest of the world. As I neared the end of the book, I was praying each night for Zana's sister, Nadia, still trapped in the Yemen.
I agree with Carla that it is not Islam that is the problem. Islam is one of the world's most glorious, beautiful religions. The cause of human cruelty, I believe, is simply ignorance. Left without spiritual or moral guidance, human beings can become the most degraded of all the creatures on earth.
Zana has written another book just recently - "A promise to Nadia". This book, along with SOLD, is available from amazon.co.uk...

Sold, by Zana Muhsen is the best book I have ever read, it is a sad story about two teenage girls sold into slavery in the Yemen by their Arab father in 1980. One girl, Zana escaped and has written Sold, a story about her primitive life in the Yemen where she suffered rape, abuse and unhygenic conditions. Her sister Nadia is still out in the Yemen unable to get home due to the appaling female rights laws in Yemen, women are not able to leave the county without their husbands permission. Zana, her mother and many people all over the world are fighting, 20 years on to have Nadia and her six children returned to England where they originally came from. Zana's latest book is called "A Promise To Nadia" and I would recommend that also.

Sold is the best an most emothional book i've ever read! I'm must have read it 10 times, but still i cry every single time ! I've tried to seek on the web , to find some information about these persons , and if Nadia Muhsen is still trapped down i Yemen . After reading this book i'm planning a trip down there , i want to see for my self how this culture is , enough i know "outsiders" want see what really happens ,i hope and pray that something can be done to stop thinks like what happened to Zana and Nadia , i must say, it's really terrible! This is a book that i on the warmest can recommend to others, as a warning , and so that everyone will know how cruel the world can be , this case is a real example of that !

When our teacher told us to read this book one week ago I thought oh god, another boring book. However it was so dramatically and shocking that I couldn't stop reading. I wasn't able to imagne that the father sold his own kids to a foreign country and married them to strangers without asking them. It was unbelievable for me that such a cruelty is possible. It was disgusting that neither the British nor the Yemeni embassy did anything to help the poor two girls. Only with the help of their mother and a lot of puplicity Zana was able to leave the Yemen. I wish Zana all the best and hope that she will be able to get her sister out of the country.

I read this book about one year ago, and I think it was one of the few books that I read in one go. The story starts off very innocent but gets extremely serious the moment that two girls are in the Yemen. They are abused, raped, forced into marriage, motherhood at an age that most of us are thinking about rollerskating and having fun.I would recommend anybody who can get their on this book to read it and afterwards contemplate about it. I never thought that foreign culture can be so restricting.

I was traveling through Heathrow Airport recently and ran across Zana Mushen's book about her ordeal in Yemen. I was horrified that such a thing can go on in this day and age. It literally made me sick that so many years were stolen from Zana and her sister. I also wonder if there has been a follow up book to where her sister Nadia is now. I was particularly interested in this because I had just been to Pakistan with my husband and noticed many more women veiled then there was 13 years ago when I was there. I have been married for 24 years to a man from Pakistan and whose family practice the Islamic faith. I am an American and can tell you my husband and his family are horrified by such a thing as selling a woman into slavery. The more you read the more frustrated you become with the these girls father who would do such a thing and the men who bought these young girls for their sons. The book moves very quickly and a person can get through it very quickly. I have shared this story with many and I was wondering why it was not sold in the U.S. It also makes me wonder with all the foolish sexual harrassment cases that go on the the United States why some of these extreme feminists don't go help the real victims of these crimes. We here in the states haven't a clue to what goes on in some parts of this world but maybe if more people would read this kind of story people would start to care. I do not think Islam is the problem. I think it is people who twist and turn things to suit themselves and only themselves. I am so glad Zana got away and I hope she is well now. I think Zana's father and others should be put in jail for a very long time for this extremely evil deed. The book is written well and more than that it is an important story.
I, like many other reviewers, am having trouble getting this story out of my mind. I have been trying to get some more info. on the current situation of these women and would appreciate anyone's help in doing this. I still don't understand why this book is not published in the U.S. I think it is of the utmost importance to get this information released in the U.S. and somehow prevent that a similar situation could happen in the future.
